About me:

Future Considerations:
Klipsch RP-280 Home Theater System
(Consists of: (2) RP-280F, (1) RP-450C, (2) RP-250S, (1) R-115SW)

Current Line Up:
Verve Subwoofer (Dual 10' & 200w amp)
Polk Audio T15 (4)
Polk Audio CS1 (for $60 this was just too good a deal to pass up on.)

Previous Audio Gear:
2-Infinity 42.5i in Custom center channel box wired in series (8 ohms) - still have, replaced w/CS1, will probably reuse these with the woofers from the 1.8's.

    And it will let you compare up to 4.
  • You are absolutely correct, I misspoke there, didn't I? ;-) The E-M1.2 and the PEN-F produce 50MP JPEGs and the E-M5.2 produces 40MP JPEGs.  Shoot RAW and each will produce even larger photos in ...
  • I will try and give you the best insights I can.  I've owned the original E-M10 and now the PEN-F.  The E-M10 is a great little camera, the MKIII adds 4K video but nothing else that is really ...

    You can stop with the childish name calling, we are all adults here.  I can and do admit I made a mistake in assuming that people would use better (I'm my mind) equipment, but I can see there ...
  • Replied in no stress
    To me that's ok.  I've got what I want and I am completely satisfied. yeah, but I just loaded up Lightroom on my laptop and gear doesn't even matter to me anymore right now.  What I'm able to do ...

    Oh sorry pal, bad luck on the timing.  Kung Fu already beat you to stuff like this by a couple of hours.  Guess you didn't read his post or my reply.  That's ok.  Thanks anyway.
  • Replied in Thoughts
    yeah thats cool, right there in the first paragraph it says he's using a DSLR. It also says he was using it before he reached for his phone... i didn't find what you were hoping to have shown in ...

    It's not that hard from a camera either. I activate my wifi on my camera, upload the image(s) I want to my phone, post on the internet.  Not hard.  Not even time consuming. Its quite sad to see ...
  • I don't think it's "a lot more work".  Now it could be easy for be because of what I shoot, but I think for most cameras it doesn't have to be a chore to get great landscape photos. Most cameras ...
  • Replied in Pen-F...
    you could add the ECG-4 grip to the Pen-F.  I did for mine and I really like having it (with two minor exceptions).  I shoot with the PL12-60/2.8-4, which is the same size as the O12-40/2.8.  With ...
  • I like your images, I think you're doing well with the Pen-F.  In that 2nd shot did you use the dramatic tone?  It has an interesting look to the image that I think is very cool.  The tone in the ...
  • I've noticed that my P45/1.7 will occasionally miss when wide open, but I need to do some more testing, because when it's spot on (95% of the time), the images are very crisp and sharp.  The ...
  • Isn't that sad though, that the best photos in the whole series is of a cat and a dog.

  • The D3400 is a small Nikon and pretty affordable too.  It's biggest pros are: (1) metering is accurate (or at least close enough) (2) menus are mostly very ...
  • 1. Shoot RAW or RAW+JPEG 2. You won't have to care about DPR and anyone on it cuz you are gonna be a billionaire if you get a legit photo of that! Moral to the story... Have your camera with you ...

  • Replied in Leap frog?
    More images of the balloon launch today Here.
  • You know, for some things, I think the Pen-F just might beat those two (for stills, not video).  I've been using the color setting on the front dial, and being able to saturate or desaturate ...
